Microsoft announced that Bing Maps is no longer in beta. In addition to removing the beta tag, Microsoft also added news apps to Bing Maps gallery: “Destination Maps App lets people create a customized map for use with invitations or when planning an event. Rather than taking a screenshot of a full map showing a destination, Destination Maps will simplify map by showing only route and major roads along the way. In addition, map can be tailored to a different style, ranging from a "back of the napkin" sketch to a "treasure map" style. Events App overlays local events on a map and lets people filter the results by date, popularity and type of event. For instance, someone can zoom in on their neighborhood to search for live jazz music on Saturday evening.”
